Miso Ramen with Pork
The Perth restaurant scene has exploded with some great Ramen establishments and as of late, my family have been enjoying them so much. While some think Ramen is just a ‘glorified 2-minute noodle” dish, I think it is much more flavoursome and the condiments you add to it takes it to the next level! As with most dishes I blog, I enjoy them at restaurants but it’s also nice to be able to make it at home for those times when one craves the comfort of home. My family and I can vouch for the fact that this dish is great on a cold day when wearing PJs 🙂
